Mastmaker Road London

Mastmaker Road consists of 199 mixed tenure homes with integral community areas. The mixed residential development varies in height from 3 to 23 storeys.

Family sized units are located at the base of the building having direct access to rear gardens, a playgrounds and communal courtyard areas. Smaller sized units are located higher up in the tower enjoying views across London from roof terraces and balconies. The form of the building evolved from an urban study and negotiates a tricky shift in scale from the two storey houses on the nearby Barkantine Estate to the 25+ storey heights of the emerging Millenium Quarter south of Canary Wharf. A new pedestrian route across the south of the site links the two areas.

A community space was designed as an integral part of the project and incorporates a rooftop sports pitch. The development makes use of a local ‘Combined Heat and Power’ system and includes greenwalls, bird boxes, bat boxes, insect bricks and biodiversity roofs to help develop local eco-systems.
